A British national was found dead with a gunshot wound in the chest in Egypt's temple city of Luxor after a financial dispute, police said Thursday.
An Egyptian man was arrested after the body of the 61-year-old Briton was found in a garbage bag on a road leading to Luxor airport, police said.
A police officer said the Egyptian man had allegedly confessed to the killing, saying he murdered the Briton "over a financial dispute".
The British national had been living in Luxor for several years. His body was found earlier this week.
A British embassy spokesperson confirmed "the death of a British national in Luxor, Egypt", without naming him or giving details.
Luxor, a city of some 500,000 people on the banks of the Nile in southern Egypt, is an open-air museum of intricate temples and pharaonic tombs.
Tens of thousands of foreign tourists visit the city each year, with many foreigners staying for years in Luxor and other Egyptian tourist hubs.
